Known to locals as “Sawyer Park.” The park is located on O. B. Riley Road, off Hwy 20/Bus. 97 at the northern end of Bend. There is a small parking lot next to the river. Cross the footbridge and follow the many trails. You can go to the left or right. Left is more riparian brush whereas right will expose you to more open land and pines.Directions
Habitat and Birds
Riparian woodland along the banks of the Deschutes River. Pygmy Nuthatch, Anna’s Hummingbird, Wood Duck, Pinyon Jay, Canyon Wren and American Dipper can be found in this interesting park. It is also an excellent place for migrants. See the bird list for “First Street River Trail.” Most of the same birds can be found here. The two areas are next to each other.
